Delmar, Delaware- Joseph Watson rebounds from qualifying woes to win his fourth Hurlock Auto and Speed Big Block Modified feature of the year. “I was praying we had everything on the front end tight. It looked like a war wagon out here,” said Watson in victory lane.
Carson Wright started on the pole position, taking a commanding lead on the field utilizing the topside of the racing surface. A lap 11 restart put the season’s winningest driver, Joseph Watson on Wright’s heels, after starting in the 17thposition.
Watson patiently peeked to the bottom of Wright for five laps, with Wright maintaining the faster line off the top. On lap 17, Watson finally completed the pass out of turn four for the lead.
Watson would go unchallenged with Wright, Bunting, Matt Hawkins, and Brad Trice rounding out the top five.
Noteworthy was Jordn Justice who suffered mechanical failures on lap 22 while running a competitive third position.
Ryan Riddle changed his luck after a mediocre July, taking the lead on lap eight to capture the AC Delco Crate Modified feature event. Danny Smack continued his consistency in second, with Greg Humlhanz, Nick Alberti, and Adam White rounding out the top five.
James Hill jumped to an early lead and continued his winning streak in the Modified Lite feature event. Aaron VanVorst, Jerry Barker, Jake Nelson, and Curt Miles, Jr., completed the top five.
